. a team of u.n. nuclear inspectors are visiting a heavy water production plant in iran that the country agreed to open to inspectors as part of the agreement that was made last month. all of this comes as president obama and iranian president hassan rouhani both defended that interim deal with iran that calls for the country to cap the amount of uranium enrichment in exchange for a bit of easing of the sanctions it was facing. president obama says the u.s. needs to see if the deal with iran will work out and gives it a 50/50 chance. critics say that is too big a risk. >> in the pacific, china said we want it, so now south korea is doing it, expanding its air defense zone. the country responding to recent actions by china that decided to suddenly expand their zone over those disputed islands in the east china sea. now the new development is sparking concerns over a possible broader project in the region. the zone would include two small islands along with a rock that's been submerged and is part of the dispute with beijing. >> this morning our thoughts and prayers are with billy graham a
the country into things. you can also make the argument that obama led on obamacare. that he led the country and fought for the bill, although i think there are people in the senate who would tell you they are the ones who did all the hard work. it is a very interesting challenge to figure out when you are leading a nation into some sort of a policy, and when you are a nation that does not want to go and it is a fine line. if you are dragging a nation that does not want to go, you will be in trouble. >> on the next "washington journal" the latest on the budget negotiations between the house and the senate with robert bixby. after that, and jeffrey young talks about the role of medicaid and the health care law. and they look at how personnel cost it into the overall budget at the defense department. is liveton journal" every day at 7 a.m. eastern on c-span. tomorrow the british prime minister david cameron and members of the house of commons the offered tribute to south african president nelson mandela who died on thursday at the age of 95. spanhave live coverage on c- 2 at 9:30 a.m. eastern.
of their countries. but president obama would bristle at comparisons. >> reporter: it was interesting. on that africa trip, president obama compared mandela to somebody else, to george washington, as the founder of south africa. and also in the sense that mandela stepped down from power voluntarily, just as george washington stepped down after two terms. mandela stepped down after only one. >> an important example to set. jon karl, thanks very much. >>> let's go to josh and the other top stories. >> we're going to begin with the other big story here in the u.s. major ice storm. and one of the worst in years. people from texas to kentucky are being hit the hardest as several states have, in fact, declared states of emergencies. millions could be left without power. elsewhere, so cold, in fact, in the rockies and in the upper plains, some locations are seeing temperatures of 25 below zero. ginger's forecast coming in just a moment. >>> and some big news about the economy today. the labor department reports that some 203,000 jobs were created last month. that number surpasses expectations. the unemploym
, never in the history of president obama and never in the history of this country have a president's nominations been denied by filibuster. that's interesting. why did we go to this stunning, radical move on november 21 ? well, maybe it was because of subcabinet members. how many of those have been denied their seats by a filibuster? according to the congressional research service? two of president obama's. three of president clinton's. -- of president bush's, george w. bush. and two of president clinton's. that's a total of seven in the history of united states senate. when a filibuster has said to a subcabinet member, we're going to deny you your seat because of a filibuster or a failed cloture vote. so president obama has been treated about exactly the same as his last two predecessors. and in all of those i've just mentioned, we've only found among cabinet members, district judges, among supreme court justices and subcabinet members, two obama nominees who've been denied their seats because a failed cloture vote. now, that is a fact, madam president. that is not a piece of re

obama's speech. it was from the center for american progress. [video clip] >> for one thing, these trends are bad for our economy. one study finds that growth is more fragile and recession is more frequent in countries with greater inequality. .hat makes sense when families have less to spend, businesses have fewer customers. households rack up greater mortgage and credit card debt. topentrated wealth at the will not result in broadly based consumer spending that drives our economy and with less regulation, it may contribute to risky speculative bubbles. rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for families and social cohesion. not just because we tend to trust our institutions us, but studies show we actually tend to test -- trust each other less. host: that was the president yesterday talking about income inequality. toare turning to all of you get your stories. are you able to move up the economic ladder? we have the lines divided by age. start calling us now. you can put your comments on facebook or tweet us as well. a response from house speaker john boehner's s

country's leaders past and present. we heard from president obama last night. let's go to the white house now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forw

undocumented in this country and the record-setting aspects of the obama administration, families separated by deportation. my home was raided by i.c.e. on the same day i began my work in congress. the raid stemmed from a traffic stop. while i.c.e. is supposed to deportations for violent crimes they decided to go after my mother, who has never committed a violent crime. families being separated is nothing new. it is nearing the two million deportation mark. i had the opportunity to meet erica earlier today and i can tell you we will miss her service in this body for the member she worked for. she has her legal status thanks to president obama's deferred action program the result of the inaction of this body that the executive had to take action with the limited authority he has to give temporary reprieve to erica but no such help to her mother. who among us would choose between our job and our family wouldn't choose our family. as erica returns home to arizona, i wish her and her mother well and good luck in ensuring they can stay together in a country i hope values families just as it valu
across the country tried to prepare for thanksgiving, the obama administration tried to hide another unilateral, one-year delay of obama care. just like in july right before the independence day holiday, the administration tried to hide the one-year delay of the business mandate. president obama and others have tried to hide what they knew about the website problems well before the website launch. the administration tries to continue to hide problems on the back end of the website that deliver information and payments to insurers often as we now know incorrectly. the administration has tried to hide the security problems that exist with the website that one official called limitless prior to the website's launch. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that millions of americans would lose the coverage that they like. the president and house democrats tried to hide for years that many americans will now lose access to the doctors, the pediatricians and perhaps even the hospitals that they choose. at this point, one has to ask, what else are they hiding? you know, wh
